44th International Congress for the History of Pharmacy
“The Pharmacist and Quality Medicines”
5-8 September 2019, Washington, DC
The Program Committee for the 44th International Congress for the History of Pharmacy is soliciting proposals for oral presentations and poster presentations for the Congress to be held 5-8 September 2019 in Washington, DC.
The Congress theme will be “The Pharmacist and Quality Medicines” and will address two interrelated topics: the history of the work of the pharmacist (i.e., pharmacy practice) and the profession’s effort to provide medicines of good quality. Attendees are invited to submit presentation proposals that touch on these topics, including the training, literature, and regulation of pharmacists or the social, scientific, technologic, or economic aspects of pharmaceuticals and the pharmaceutical industry. The Congress encourages abstracts concerning the history of pharmacy or medicines from all geographical locations and from any historical era.
Abstracts must be submitted online using the online form available at the call for abstracts on the Congress website. Please provide all requested information. Abstracts may not exceed 500 words. The deadline for oral presentation submissions is 1 April 2019 and the deadline for poster presentation submissions is 1 May 2019.
Submitters will be informed of whether their submissions have been accepted by 1 June 2019 for oral presentations and by 1 July 2019 for poster presentations. Although potential presenters may submit more than one proposal for oral and poster presentations, no more than one oral and one poster presentation per individual will be accepted for the program.
All poster and podium presenters must register for the Congress.
Oral presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes, including discussion. Posters shall be no larger than 48 inches (122 cm) in width and 72 inches (183 cm) in height.
The host hotel for the 44th International Congress for the History of Pharmacy will be the Capital Hilton in downtown Washington, DC.
